K5 Bus Route Petition

Last Saturday I was in West Barnes getting signatures for a petition with Cllrs Brian and Gilli Lewis-Lavender for a more frequent K5 bus. We had a fantastic response.

Reporting Back – July 2015

Welcome my latest community update containing news on the Budget, the Airports Commission’s report and the Tramlink Upgrade at Wimbledon station. 

Wimbledon Tramlink Upgrade

You may have noticed that construction work has begun at the Tramlink platform at Wimbledon Station, meaning there will be no Trams between Wimbledon and Dundonald Road until the end of October. This work is to build an additional platform at Wimbledon, which will allow trams to arrive and depart Wimbledon more often, boosting their frequency from eight to 12 trams per hour.

Your Important Choice Tomorrow

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support across Wimbledon, Raynes Park and Morden.  It is an honour and a privilege to have represented you for the last ten years.

Visit to Kew House
